Former Production Arts Student Enjoying Working on Multi-Million-Pound Production Projects

December 08 2016

Ashley Ball studied Production Arts at Lincoln College before progressing to Backstage Academy, where he is taking a BA (Hons) in Live Visual Design and Production.

The Backstage Academy, a specialist school based in West Yorkshire provides training for the live events industry.

We spoke to Ashley about his time at Lincoln College, being part of a multi-million-pound project and life at university:

“My time at Lincoln College definitely helped me get where I am today, without having the practical and real world scenarios that were delivered to us in college and being given the opportunity to work on professional shows and events, I would not have got as far at university as I have already. I think that is down to the excellent delivery of the Production Arts course at college.

“The work opportunities at Backstage Academy are out of this world! The high standard of skills that I have gained in the first year alone are amazing. I’ve had some of my work sent to Disney Imagineering as a concept idea for a new immersive roller-coaster, worked on projects like ‘You Say You Want A Revolution’ at the Victoria & Albert Museum, and designed the content and technical workflow for the 2017 World Future Energy Expo in Kazakhstan.

“The greatest challenge I’ve faced since starting university has been working on a multi-million-pound project and having responsibilities on site that are usually unheard of for someone of my age.”

“After university, I want to have my own consulting and design company for creative video technologies in the Live Events sector, or to work for a similar company as a Creative Director. I see myself working on some of the most ground-breaking and visually impressive shows in Europe.”

“My advice for fellow alumni of Lincoln College is don’t just go to university because you feel you have to, go because you are passionate about the career or subject area you want to pursue.”
